Unspoken Pain

October 9, 2008
By Megan Clark, Barrington, NH

Their harsh words whip her like chains.
But do they understand the pain
They put her through day after day?
No show of mercy, revenge paid.
She remembers when they used to be friends
Used to be inseperable til the very end
But then they found this older, new clique
And now their cruel actions just make her sick.

The author's comments:
This, sadly, is a true story. It's about me, believe it or not, and two people who hate me (to put it lightly). They were glaring at me the other day (for a reason I do not know at the moment) and I thought of how we used to be such great friends. And now this.

This is short and yet packed with such ardent emotions. Well done. I like how you tell a story at the same time as you descdribe the emotions that go along with the events. Also, you did a very good job by catching the reader with the first line, "Their harsh words whip her like chains." After that, I just had to read the rest. Keep writing!

Loved your poem. I dunno why your friends turned on you, but it happens. I liked your title, too. Reminds me of one of my own, Silently Screaming.
